Watertown, which received a limited supply of at-home Covid-19 tests from the State of Connecticut, distributed them free of charge to residents on a first come first serve basis, at John Trumbull Primary School in Oakville on Sunday, January 2. Each testing kit contained two rapid tests. Town staff and volunteers distributed the kits to those who provided a driver’s license or piece of addressed mail to establish proof of residency. Due to a limited supply, each vehicle received a maximum of two testing kits (4 tests total).

Police were present to direct traffic; they also informed the long lines of traffic along Echo Lake Road and Ice House Road that the distribution center at JTPS, which opened one hour earlier than planned at 10 a.m., had run out of test kits at 11:03 a.m. (Dreher photo)
